Abstract:The planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) has been popular for mobile communication applications because of its small form factor and low manufacturing cost necessary to meet the specifcations of small hand-held devices. A detailed parametric study of several PIFA designs, including a U-Slot PIFA, was conducted via computer simulations using a finite element solver (FEM) software, ANSYS HFSS. The PIFAs were designed to achieve a dual-band operation in the Industrial, Scientifc and Medical Radio (ISM) bands of 2.45 GHz and 5.8 GHz. The simulation results were confirmed via fabrication and measurement. The second part of this research is to study various ground plane modifications to achieve a greater bandwidth at the desired frequencies. Achieving greater bandwidth will allow for further antenna miniaturization through height-bandwidth trade-offs.
